Hey all, I'm interested in joining the black rifle club, but want to do so without breaking the bank. Does anyone have any suggestions of some good bang for the buck brands of rifles? I'm quite technically capable, so building one from parts is an option also. Would a used AR be better to start with? A kit? As with most things, I know that you get what you pay for, but I'd like to keep the cost down as low as possible since this would largely be a hobby project for range and plinking use. I am somewhat familiar with the design, but don't have any hands on experience. Any info or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
